What are the differences between penetration test and red teaming

There are subtle differences between penetration testing and red teaming. While both are able to identify the threats that your IT systems might be vulnerable to, the approach of finding these threats is different. The red teaming uses realistic attacker tactics, spear phishing and deployment of customized Trojans to test the defenses of the business.

Penetration testing on the other hand relies upon information like IP addresses to scan an application. Red teaming is usually conducted by keeping the personnel at the target organization unaware of the mock drill. Comat is the best place in Singapore to get the red team training.
